Newton NH School Information

Newton is a town in Rockingham County, New Hampshire, United States. The population was 4,603 at the 2010 census.

History

The sixth town to be granted from the Masonian land purchase of 1746, Newton was originally part of Salisbury, Massachusetts; later, part of Amesbury, Massachusetts; then part of the West Parish of Amesbury; then part of New Town or South Hampton, Massachusetts (now South Hampton, New Hampshire). A number of the residents felt they were too far away from its church for their convenience, and the town was incorporated by Colonial Governor Benning Wentworth as Newtown in 1749, simply because it was a new town. In 1846, the New Hampshire legislature voted to contract the name to Newton.

Notable inhabitants

  • Captain Joseph Bartlett, soldier in the French and Indian Wars
  • Mark Mowers, professional ice-hockey player for the Boston Bruins
